Two-thirds of Americans side with President Trump in faulting China for the pandemic despite the media trying to show otherwise.
According to The Washington Free Beacon:
More than two-thirds of Americans say that the Chinese government is at least partially to blame for the pandemic, according to a new YouGov poll.
The survey, commissioned by the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VoC), found that 69 percent of Americans agree that the Chinese government is either “somewhat” or “very” responsible for the spread of the coronavirus. Furthermore, 51 percent of the respondents said China should pay compensation to countries affected by the virus, while only 17 percent opposed such reparations.
Americans also expressed a historically negative opinion about China in light of the coronavirus pandemic, with 67 percent of them viewing China as either a competitor or an enemy. Marion Smith, the executive director of the VoC, said that the numbers indicate that Americans view China just as unfavorably as they did the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
“Americans are waking up to this new reality [about China],” Smith said in an interview with the Washington Free Beacon. “We should have learned lessons from the Cold War. In particular, the nature of communist parties.”
Gallup found that American’s view of China is the most unfavorable than ever before.
